I'm creating a model in which I use an extruded spline for my cable connections. The problem is that the file size is getting enormous to the size of 35MB+.
I was working on project prior to this model that is very similar. I took the same approach when crating my cables with an extruded spline. The odd thing is that the files size of the older job was a fraction of the new job. What could be causing the new spline solid to be exponentially bigger than before?
How many grips on the spline?
Well, that's interesting as well.
I tried to attach an extruded example but the file was too large .
What I did was create extruded a spline in the current drawing, then wblock'ed it into its own drawing....5MB+.
So I cut and pasted the exact same spline into a new drawing, extruded it the exact same way, then saved it...100KB.
It's a setting I'm overlooking. Turning SOLIDHIST off and purging gave results that aren't really effective...maybe a 100-200KB difference.
I'm a little confused.
So I'm creating the cable in a different drawing and pasting them into the current drawing as a work around. Kinda stinks.
Sometimes the extrusion take 1 sec. The extrusions that take 3+ seconds are the objects that end up being large files.
Could it have anything to do with the UCS?
Attached is an example of a "large file" spline that hasn't been extruded yet. This particular entity takes me about 6s to extrude.
Sorry for swamping the topic, but here is a perfect example. The green spline takes much longer than the blue to extrude.
